## Baccarat Chemin de Fer Regulations and Method

Baccarat Banque Standards

Baccarat chemin de fer is wagered on with eight decks of cards in a dealing shoe. Cards below ten are valued at face value while 10, J, Q, K are zero, and Ace is one. Wagers are made on the ‘banker’, the ‘player’, or for a tie (these are not really people; they just represent the 2 hands that are dealt).

Two cards are given to both the ‘banker’ and ‘gambler’. The value for every hand is the sum total of the cards, but the first number is ignored. For example, a hand of five and 6 has a value of one (five plus six equals eleven; ignore the initial ‘one’).

A 3rd card might be given using the following rules:

- If the player or bank has a total of eight or 9, both players stay.

- If the gambler has 5 or less, he takes a card. Players otherwise hold.

- If the gambler holds, the banker hits on 5 or lower. If the gambler hits, a table is employed to figure out if the bank stays or takes a card.

Baccarat Odds

The larger of the 2 totals wins. Winning wagers on the banker pay out 19 to 20 (even money minus a 5 percent commission. The Rake is recorded and paid off once you depart the table so make sure you still have money left before you quit). Winning wagers on the gambler pay one to one. Winning wagers for tie typically pay 8 to 1 but on occasion 9 to 1. (This is a awful wager as ties occur less than 1 in every ten hands. Avoid putting money on a tie. However odds are astonishingly greater for 9 to 1 versus 8:1)

Bet on correctly punto banco gives pretty decent odds, aside from the tie bet of course.

Baccarat Chemin de Fer Strategy

As with all games Baccarat has a few accepted false impressions. One of which is similar to a myth in roulette. The past is not a fore-teller of events yet to happen. Recording previous results at a table is a bad use of paper and an insult to the tree that was cut down for our paper desires.

The most established and likely the most favorable scheme is the one-three-two-six tactic. This tactic is used to build up winnings and limit losses.

Begin by wagering one unit. If you win, add 1 more to the two on the table for a total of three dollars on the second bet. Should you succeed you will retain six on the table, remove four so you keep 2 on the 3rd round. If you come away with a win on the 3rd round, deposit two to the four on the table for a total of 6 on the fourth bet.

Should you lose on the first round, you take a loss of 1. A profit on the initial bet followed by a hit on the 2nd causes a loss of two. Success on the initial two with a defeat on the 3rd provides you with a take of 2. And wins on the initial three with a loss on the fourth means you break even. Succeeding at all 4 wagers leaves you with twelve, a profit of 10. This means you will be able to not win on the second round five times for each favorable streak of four rounds and still balance the books.
